basket don't screw on.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was very upset when I bought brand new poles and the basket won't even screw on. Sure can't use poles when the basket constantly falls off. :(


Lori you just have to push harder and the basket will eventually lock in place. It isn't as simple as just screwing it on.

I'm having the same problem with mine. Appears to be a manufacturing flaw. There are no threads in the basket cylinder.

Like Mike said, it requires some force while turning. Bit strange at first but if you keep trying you’ll get it. I was confused at first too.

I got the basket barely on after several minutes of pushing and then ran the bottom of the pole with the basket on it under hot water for a minute and it popped right on.


Hi, I am wondering about sizing. I normally ski a 125cm pole when skiing downhill at the resort so am wondering which size I should get. I think either could work but just wondering what you recommend.


How do you remove the straps on these poles?
